Ted Cruz Says Second Amendment Will Be ‘Written Out of the Constitution’ If Any of These Presidential Candidates Are Elected
Following the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz said the 2016 election should be a “referendum” on the nation’s highest court.
The Texas senator told NBC’s Chuck Todd Sunday morning that he is looking forward to debating either of the Democratic presidential contenders on the future of the Supreme Court. However, according to Cruz, it isn’t just the two Democrats who could immeasurably alter the interpretation of the Constitution, in particular when it comes to gun rights.
“If Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders wins, or for that matter, if Donald Trump wins — whose record is indistinguishable from them on a great many issues — then we will see the Second Amendment written out of the Constitution,” Cruz said.
